'll quote them, only honest, law-abiding gun owners will be affected and our children will remain vulnerable. what is the nra strategy when it comes to this debate? here is tom foreman with an out front investigation on how the nra gets what it wants. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? >> in a hard-hitting response to calls to are new gun restriction, the nra has rolled out this ad attacking the white house saying the president is happy to have armed secret service agents protecting his children but for everyone else -- >> he is just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. >> reporter: it is the latest muscle flex by the gun group superpac which last year spent more than $16 million from its deep war chest to influence political races. that's not a tremendous amount for such efforts. big oil, the pharmacy industry, even retired people have more and better funded lobbyists. the gun group uses its money and membership effectively often targeting early any lawmaker that threatens to go against gun rights. larry sab ba toe is at the university of
. >> -- to be his father and her father-in-law. i guess that's not happening now. help us out here. >> first things first, who is manti te'o, all-american linebacker for notre dame, the most tradition-rich football program in all the country. the yankees, the cowboys of college football. he was the star. >> this guy was going to win the heisman, man. >> he won every defensive award, best player on defense, second in the heisman, unheard of for a defensive player. and part of his story throughout the season was that in september of last year at the beginning of the season, his grandmother died, and then his girlfriend died within hours of each other. >> heartbreaking story. >> the reports range from an hour to a couple of days. >> you were watching and you cried. >> can i just say, my son, joey, said there's something wrong with this guy. he told me this months ago. >> joey is kind of wise. >> i was watching espn over the holidays. because alabama was on, the story. and they tell this story. and then i got a call the next morning. and it was like no, no, no! and i started tearing up. and i was like
of rights. it's sheer ignorance of basic constitutional law. it's ignorance of what justice scalia said. and that app, forget about whether 4-year-olds can play it or 8-year-olds can play it or 12-year-olds can play it. >> exactly. >> i guess, mika, the question is, what organization puts out an app like that that any children can play one month after the most just indescribably horrific slaughter of 6 and 7-year-olds? is that really how they mark the anniversary? has this organization become so out of touch, so insulated, so extreme, so arrogant that they think middle americans are going to put up with that? >> and they also -- look -- >> it's indescribable. >> they want to push back against regulations and laws. you know, i don't want to create a nanny state, as much as you all might disagree with that, but what kind of society do we want to be? what kind of decisions are you going to make, companies, on your own to help our society be better, healthier and promoting of good business and of good people in this world? and if that sounds naive, well, then i'll just go back to work on re
think he did. >> he's harvard two degrees -- >> so how could he so misstate the law on guns when in fact scalia and the supreme court in 2008 specifically said a woman in anacostia in a crack house next door could have a handgun? and also saying the president exploited this, could somebody tell him he's actually senator of a very large demographically changing state and not the spokesman for the tea party for, like, you know, the greater tea party, the greater houston chapter of the tea party? i was shocked. >> i was shocked too. frankly, because he seemed to be saying in the senatorial way, cruz, my friend and they barely know each other. cruz went after him over and over and over again. it was a very unusual performance by a freshman senator who doesn't seem to want to get along, wants to start a fire here. >> the problem is mika if this had happened in 2010 i'd say i understand the politics of it. the republican party i'm sorry, we have our backs against the wall. the president of the united states has a 52% approval rating. john boehner has an 18% approval

minutes after the hour. new york may be the first state to enact tougher gun laws since the newtown massacre. they passed raw changes and banning assault weapons and putting in place measures to keep guns away from the mentally ill. this plan heads to the state assembly later. >> people have had to live through these tragedies. tragedy after tragedy after tragedy. people are saying at what point do we get it? at what point do you say enough? we understand? no one else has to die? no more innocent loss of life. >> governor cuomo's bill said the webster provision. a life without parole for anyone who responded. that was in response to the christmas eve firefight that killed two firefighters. >> the vice president recommends back ground checks on all gun sales, making certain guns off limits and keeping guns away from the mentally ill as well. we will go live to washington a few minutes from now. >> fresh off the fiscal cliff, president obama is digging in his heels on the next battle, raising the debt ceiling. in a news conference, he said he would not trade cuts in government spendin
relax their gun laws. having more guns available for self-defense may curb gun violence. >>> the "washington post." clarence thomas broke a 7-year silence during oral arguments. what he was saying was unclear. sources say he was joking about the ivy league and the k transcript only partially showed what he said. he hasn't spoken since 1996. >>> walmart plans to hire any veteran who wants a job and officials project it will lead to 100,000 veterans in five years. >> that's a promise, significant. >> great news. also really quickly again, we want to show while we're doing the papers, the daily news, nra, coming up on the anniversary of newtown, where 20 young children were killed, has put out an app that 4 year-olds can use four years old and up, shoot at targets that are shaped like coffins. >> so get your app. let's go to willie at "politico "politico." >>> chief white house correspondent, mr. allen. you will take us inside the chuck hagel war room, calling the chuck hagel confirmation war room. where is he? i know he's on the house talking to old colleagues ensuring rep
. the progressive era new deal and great society laws were enacted when america was still a young and growing nation. they were enacted in a nation that was vibrant, raw, underinstitutionalized and needing taming. reinvigorating a mature nation means giving government to give people the tools to compete but then opening up a wide field so they do so ruak cowsly creatively. it means spending more here but de regulating more there. it means facing the fact we do have to choose between current benefits to seniors and investments in our future, and that to pretend we don't face that choice as obama did is effectively to sacrifice the future to the past. >> jonathan, first, what do you think of this speech and secondly, what do you think of david's column? >> i thought the president's speech was terrific, a progressive vision for the country. the guy won twice and ran on all the things he talked about yesterday, inclusion, balanced approach to the nation's problems. when it comes to david brooks' column, as mika was reading, i was thinking, how is that different from what the president actually said? i m
americans want stricter gun laws. and obviously, there will be opposition up on capitol hill. there is some bipartisan support for what the president is doing, but i think in general, there is a sense that now's the time to get it done. so that will be a big priority for the president. >> we've also been talking quite a bit about the debt ceiling. we now have the president, he's already gotten this offer from the house republicans for this extension, this three-month extension. and then i guess that nobody would get paid if the senate doesn't buy this. so do you expect a big fight ahead on this as well? >> well, we expected a much bigger fight. there was that sense that this was building up to be like what we saw in the past. but the white house says they're encouraged by what republicans are doing. you hear senate majority leader harry reid as well, saying that they're encouraged by this move. because, as you know, republicans were saying that they would not raise the debt ceiling on this. there were these equal spending cuts. and the president came out and said, i'm not going to negotiate
